Am I Okay?

Define okay; then I can tell you

Does okay mean

I am breathing

My lungs are working

My heart is pumping

My brain is thinking?

My body is performing

All of its functions,

Ensuring my survival?

Then I am okay

 

Define okay:

Does okay mean

I am happy

Nothing is bothering me

Nothing is hurting

Nothing scares me

Nothing stops me 

From smiling from inside out,

With nothing to hide?

Then I am not okay

 

This poem is about: 
Me
